We each had a wrap and onion rings for side. Prices a bit high for lunch at about $13 for wraps and sandwiches, although the portion was decent. Nice location and vibe inside the place.

Ate dinner on a Friday night. Food was just OK. The lack of service by our server was the most disappointing. The slice of dessert came with a soup spoon???? The slice was so small a demitasse spoon would be about the right size. Sure it was a Friday night but not really really busy. We are not "needy" as... More

The carving board sandwiches are outstanding. Fresh ingredients and great flavors. The staff is very friendly though they can be a bit disorganized. It's like eating at your friends house, in a good way. I personally love this place but I couldn't give it 5 stars because of inconsistencies. We have had amazing meals but we have had less than...

Ok, I had never been here before but we met family that loves this place. I saw on the menu blueberry pancakes and asked our waitress how many. Since it was only one, my sister and I decided to try. Wow, I hope I can post the picture, it was huge, bigger than the plate! And should I add, delicious!... More

My wife and I had an enjoyable Valentine's Day lunch at the Sunken Well Tavern. We were seated immediately and promptly served by friendly staff. My wife had a crab cake sandwich with a side salad - the sandwich was of a good size and tasty; the salad fresh. I had a grilled chicken Caesar salad and a cup of... More

My husband and I went for Sunday brunch and were not dissapointed. I had Jersey eggs Benedict, which was perfectly prepared. Husband had eggs, bacon and the largest pancake we've ever seen. You can tell this is very much a local spot, but as non-locals we still had a great meal and felt very welcome. I wouldn't say you have... More

This is your quintessential neighborhood hangout which happens to have good eats. I came here with my son at his recommendation for a quick lunch and I was not disappointed. Had the Dirty burger (burger with chili and cheese) and my son had a grill cheese and cup of crab bisque. Great grub! Our waitress Jessica was a delight and... More

So we decided to try this place after lots of great reviews... the appetizer was great, my quesadilla was also good. The other person in my party had a horrible experience. The crab cake was cold on the middle and the hand cut fried were total grease.; eating undercooked seafood is not good! When the server came to bring the... More
